What follows are the provocative words on the Florida Chapter of the Sierra Club’s website, .
Some speakers will be familiar to you as they are here in Cedar Key. 
“Can we save Cedar Key before it's too late? The tiny coastal island off Florida's Big Bend is a historic gem but is also one the most-threatened Florida coastal islands in the face of climate change and sea level rise.  The conference is to provide a real world examination of the research of climate change and sea level rise as it affects Cedar Key and the Levy County coast by a University of Florida research team. The Cedar Key community will present information on their efforts at adaptation and the future issues. The closing speaker, Dr. D. Yogi Goswami, of the University of South Florida, will examine climate change issues on a state, national and international dimension. Evening: A Clambake Dinner with entertainment by Anna White Hodges.
